Cheater (Curious Liaisons #1) by Rachel Van Dyken
Kindle Edition, 317 pagesPublished February 28th 2017 by Skyscape
Review in Portuguese and English.
Lucas Thorn wasn’t born a cheater. All it took was a single moment—say, a certain disastrous incident on the night before his wedding—and boom. Reputation destroyed forever and always. So now he owns it. He has a lady friend for every night of the week (except Sundays—God’s day and all), and his rules are simple: No commitments. No exceptions.
But a certain smart-mouthed, strawberry blonde vixen is about to blow that all to hell.
Avery Black has never forgiven Lucas for cheating on her sister. And suddenly being forced to work with him is pretty much a nightmare on steroids. Of course, it does afford her the opportunity to make his life as difficult as possible. But no good revenge scheme comes without payback. Because he didn’t become the Lucas Thorn without learning a few things about women.
Now Avery’s lust for vengeance has turned into, well, lust. And if Lucas stops cheating, it’s definitely not because he’s falling in love…
O herói foi noivo e no dia anterior ao casamento ele traiu a noiva com a irmã dela. Mas na verdade ele estava apaixonado pela terceira irmã que era a caçula da família.
Esta história é daquelas em que a família compartilha o p** do herói. Fica tudo em família.
Quatro anos se passaram e ele está convencido que nasceu para ser traidor.
O cara tem uma mulher diferente para cada dia da semana e descansa no domingo quando dedica o dia à irmã dele.
As mulheres sabem da existência do calendário e que elas tem exclusividade só naquele dia da semana. Na cabeça dele ele acha que uma mulher sabendo da existência das outras mulheres não é traição.
A heroína aparece na vida dele novamente trabalhando na mesma empresa como assistente dele.
Aqueles sentimentos que ele tinha por ela retornam e os sentimentos dela por ele nunca mudaram. Eles eram melhores amigos e ela era louca por ele. Ele era louco por ela também.
A partir daí a história se desenvolve e confesso que não gostei das cenas dele com as outras mulheres, mas continuei a leitura para ver como a história iria se desenrolar.
Me peguei várias vezes rindo alto durante a leitura e em outras cenas querendo dar uns tapas na cara do herói.
Também penso que para um cara que defendia com unhas e dentes o estilo de viver dele com várias mulheres e sem exclusividade, ele teve uma reação meio boba evitando desapontar a família e fingindo um relacionamento com a heroína só para agradar a família.
Não gostei das irmãs da heroína e não me interessei nem um pouco pelo que aconteceria com elas. Com irmãs assim não precisa de inimigos.
Pessoalmente na vida real eu nunca ficaria com um cara assim. Ele merecia um bom banho com água sanitária e hora marcada eterna no divã de um psiquiatra. E as mulheres do calendário dele uma boa dose de auto respeito e amor próprio.
E a heroína merecia um cara melhor e menos usado. Ele é mais usado que uma maçaneta de porta de banheiro de uma rodoviária.
Achei que faltou um epílogo para finalizar melhor a história, mas como como a série continua deve ter mais cenas com eles no próximo livro.
Acabei gostando da leitura, já li melhores e piores
The hero was engaged and the day before the wedding he betrayed the bride with her sister. But in fact he was in love with the third sister who was the youngest of the family.
This story is one of those where the family shares the hero's d**k. All in the family.
Four years have passed and he is convinced he was born to be a cheater.
The guy has a different woman for every day of the week and rest on Sunday when dedicates the day to his sister.
Women know of the existence of the calendar and that they have exclusivity only on that day of the week. In his mind he thinks a woman knowing of the existence of other women is not cheating.
The heroine appears in his life again working at the same company as his assistant.
Those feelings he had for her return, and her feelings for him never changed. They were best friends and she was crazy about him. He was crazy about her too.
From there the story develops and I confess that I didn't like the scenes of him with other women, but I kept reading to see how the story would unfold.
I found myself laughing several times during the reading and in other scenes wanting to slap in the face of the hero.
I also think that for a guy who defended tooth and nail the style of living with several women and without exclusivity, he had a kind of silly reaction avoiding disappoint family and faking a relationship with heroin just to please the family.
I didn't like the Sisters of the heroin and don't care one bit for what would happen to them. With sisters like that doesn't need enemies.
Personally in real life I would never be with a guy like that. He deserved a good wash with bleach and eternal appointment on the couch of a psychiatrist. And the women of his calendar a good dose of self-respect and self-love.
And the heroin deserved a better guy and less used. He is more used to a bathroom door knob of a bus station.
I thought it lacked an epilogue to finish better the story, but as the series goes on must have more scenes with them in the next book.
I ended up enjoying the reading, I've read better and worse.
"I was found in bed with my fiancée’s sister."
“I sleep with a different girl every day of the week—except Sunday. That’s God’s day, so I hang out with my sister, Erin.”
"He smelled like perfume. Lipstick and bite marks marred the golden skin around his neck."
"Quickies in his office? “Good meeting?”
"Monday, or Molly. She had a short pixie haircut that looked killer on her, and with tattoos down her arms and a nose ring—well, she so did not look like a Molly to me, but she was absolutely stunning."
"Tuesday, or Tabatha and Cary. “Wait.” I frowned. “Why two girls?” Lucas glanced over my shoulder. His breath, which unfortunately didn’t smell like an old man’s, kissed the top of my neck. “They’re roommates.”
“Wednesday looks . . . way too normal.” He laughed. “Chelsea’s a teacher.” I almost dropped the stack of papers again. “But that’s so . . .” “What?” He placed his hand on the paper and lowered it so I had no choice but to look at him. “Normal?” “I was going to say typical, that you’d sleep with the help.”
"Anna was working; she was my Thursday."
"Friday.” I tried not to get jealous as I glanced at Nadia’s"
"Saturday. “Whoa.” I stared at the picture. Hard. “She’s . . . um, different.” “Forty.” Lucas answered quickly. “And yes, Amy’s special, but then each of the ladies has something unique."
"Amy was an amazing kisser. In fact, I was pretty sure she was the best I’d ever had, which was saying a lot."
"But he was wearing her lipstick. And she’d been in his office for over an hour. And he looked guilty."
